I do run my Bathroom fan before turning on the shower and toilet usage. I have you tubed the ventilation thing for humidity control and several winter campers state to leave it cracked open. Two thoughts on this (winter camping): 1) The DW leaves it cracked open due to condensation forming on the metal lid and then dripping on her during her potty time. 2) We use a whole house dehumidifier when cool, raining, and or usage of ceramic heaters (minimum air flow). First clue is condensation that will form on the windows. We have to dump the water tank on it daily or when we get up and before going to bed. Hope this helps! Happy winter camping!!!

I guess you haven't had any problems but normally if the bathroom fan is on when you flush the toilet the fan sucks the fumes from your black tank into your camper.

My dealer said that he would be getting power from the ceiling light in the bedroom.

I would be surprised if it wasn't wired already. They don't make each wire harness custom for each rig.

I agree with Phil. Most wire harnesses are standard even if you didn't get the option it should still be wired.

I don't have a problem with that, my tank smells like perfume!

Installing 2 power fans , one in bedroom and one on the living area. The bedroom fan will be reversible. We will pickup our trailer next week then take it out over the Valentines Day weekend. I'll report on the fans when we return.
